I have a 1990 Hobie 18M that has the bungee inside the boom stretched and useless, hanging out. I know it's not important, but I hate things that are not neat (anal, I know). Has anyone ever replaced this without drilling apart the boom?

I can't find anything under the repairs section.

Hobie 18 Outhaul bunjee replacement

The bunjee runs from the car to below one of the cleats. Dont think it would be real easy to do without taking a cap off the back end.

I have replaced the bungee in the boom without removing the cap; however, it took a bit of patients and finess. I used masking tape to contain and taper the ends with gardening wire to thread things through. It took a little while but was worth it! :D

You can have the cap off in less that 5 min and back on in about the same. If u do not have a rivet gun we sometimes use sheet metal screws to re install the cap. I know it would add more than 10 min to the project if you tried to do it without taking them off!
